    coarse stone options?

    ideally i'd like splash n go for cutting new bevels and thinning. maybe gesshin 600, but is that even coarse enough or would it serve dual purpose by bypassing 1k stone and jump straight to medium grit?
    my only coarse at the moment is naniwa 150, it cuts ok but dishes fast and just sounds like something is getting murdered.

    most coarse stones suck. i've tried several and wish i had saved the money to buy a belt grinder.

    Gesshin 400 is really nice but a soaker. The Beston 500 is a great value soaker. You can use a Chosera 400 as a splash n go. Another decent option is a Sigma Power 400 splash n go. It's not as fast as the others but it gets the job done. I don't like soakers too much but sub-1k, I will suck it up and do it unless I'm gonna use diamond plates.

    Yes actually I would take a diamond plate as my preference in this roll. DMT XC probably.

    Typical.

    Gesshin 400 is definitely a soaker. In my experience, it's best after at least a 15 minute soak. Using it after 5 and 10 minute soaks, I felt that it was super thirsty and needed to be constantly refreshed. But after a 15 or 20 minute soak, I felt that I could use it a while without having to refresh it with water.

    I vote chosera 400 for splash n' go cuts fast doesn't dish quickly and has decent tactile feed back.
